Viewpoint Piece Addresses Zimbabwe's Health System

October 16, 2009

A Lancet viewpoint article describes Zimbabwe's "recent health crisis and its causes, and make[s] proposals for an effective and sustainable health system." The authors conclude, "Zimbabwe's once proud achievements in health have been undermined over the past 20 years by increasing poverty, bad governance, poor economic policies, widespread HIV/AIDS, and a weakened health system. ... A new opportunity now exists to rebuild the health-care system; its success will be contingent on firmly re-establishing the principles of social justice, equity, and public participation" (10/13).
